Amy Mullins, Children’s Director

Amy wanted to teach children as far back as she can remember.  She thought it would be as a kindergarten teacher through the school system; but God had a different plan, a perfect plan in place for her life.  In 2008,  Amy came on staff as the Children’s Ministry Director at West Hills.  God has given her a passion for working with children.  She loves serving alongside many volunteers who also want to help children discover a love for God and His Word.  

Amy and her husband Mike were married in 1999.  They have two boys- Dylan and Connor.  Amy wants her boys, as well as all children here at West Hills, to grow up knowing that God has a perfect plan for their lives!  Amy enjoys attending her boys’ sporting events, crafting, going to yard sales with Mike, and watching UNC basketball – Go Heels!  You may contact Amy at amy.mullins@westhillschristian.org.

 

Dani Harris, Worship Director

My name is Dani Harris. I am originally from Sevier County, TN.  I accepted the Lord as my Savior at the age of 9 and grew up in church my whole life. At the age of 11,  I received my first guitar and began traveling with my family, singing and playing guitar while sharing the good news of Christ.  I went on to play and sing in various youth worship teams.  I then led the worship team at campus house at ETSU for about 3 years. I am so blessed to have received the calling to lead the worship team here at West Hills since February of 2017.  This church has truly been a blessing to me and I look forward to what the Lord has in store for the future of West Hills Christian Church.   You may contact Dani at dani.gibson@westhillschristian.org.

 

Megan Street, Interim Youth Director

Megan is serving as the Interim Youth Director at West Hills. She is from Elizabethton, TN and still resides there. She has been involved in church and church camps her whole life and was baptized when she was only seven. During her time at West Hills, she hopes to further the desire in the hearts of students to grow closer to God and to serve Him wherever He may lead.  She is currently a student at ETSU,  finishing her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. Megan has been on several mission trips, but ultimately, fell in love with the people of Haiti. She is passionate about serving God, both here and in Haiti, and wants to use her degree to do medical/dental mission work. When she is not studying for her board exams, you can find her watching baseball (GO BRAVES!!!) or reading. Feel free to contact Megan at streetml@etsu.edu.
